This was given to me by a visitor here and here's the description that came with it. The documentary this music is from is pretty cool, though. Full of very good footage of Red, Blue, and others at the ranch. Unfortunately, though, it's also full of Bugliosi and his bullshit.
"This is the "soundtrack" from MANSON, the 1973 Oscar nominated documentary directed by Robert Hendrickson and Laurence Merrick. Soundtrack music for the movie was created by Brooks Poston and Paul Watkins, two former Manson associates.
I don't know if there was an official soundtrack release, so I've extracted most of the songs from the film and converted them to mp3. So, there is a little dialogue in some of the tracks. And there are two songs that were from the "Manson Family Jams" album, so I included those two from the original album, not the film, so you dont' have to hear the dialogue on those two tunes.
While I got the names of the songs from the closing credits of the film and on a website. However, there is one song, "Up Beat" by Brooks Poston that I coudn't identify in the film. It might be the closing song of the film - but that song is just a shorter version of "Moments", so I just called it "Moments-2". There are a few instrumentals in the film, but they were either too short or had too much dialogue, so I didn't include these."
